Black Swan Lands at PNB

A flock of love stories takes flight at Pacific Northwest Ballet
PNB principal dancer Kaori Nakamura goes to the dark side in "Black Swan"

Don your tutu, develop a deranged doppelgänger and sprout unwanted epidermal plumage—“Black Swan” is taking flight at Pacific Northwest Ballet, along with several other besotted ballet masterpieces.

With Love Stories, PNB offers a mélange of love’s mercurial moods, including the divertimento from Le Baiser de la Fée (by George Balanchine, with a little help from Stravinsky), Jerome Robbins’ take on the Nijinsky classic Afternoon of a Faun (with music by Debussy), Jean-Christophe Maillot’s balcony-based pas de deux from Roméo et Juliette (with musical props due to Prokofiev) and Kent Stowell’s Marius Petipa–inspired pas de deux from Swan Lake (Natalie Portman not included!).

11/4–11/13.
Times and prices vary.
